Bebel Gilberto   [sound recording]. CD Bebel Gilberto [sound recording].
Gilberto's 2nd album (from 2004) combines a warm, jazz-inflected Brazilian pop with sophisticated electronica. Bossa Nova for the 21st century.

Recommended by Rob at Stanwood Library.

Gilberto, Bebel.
CD R GIL12

Valleys of Neptune   [sound recording] CD Valleys of Neptune [sound recording]
Great compilation of previously-unreleased material from 1968 and (mostly) 1969, detailing the gradual transformation of Hendrix's sound from the psychedelia and blues of his Experience-era albums to the jazzier, more soulful sounds of his later recordings.

Recommended by Rob at Stanwood Library.

Hendrix, Jimi. prf
CD MR HEN4056

Happy trails   [sound recording] CD Happy trails [sound recording]
Great 2nd album by these kings of the 60's San Francisco ballroom scene. Particularly recommended is their amazing interpretation of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" (which filled up an entire side of the original LP), which prominently features the stinging, metallic guitar of the late John Cipollina.

Recommended by Rob at Stanwood Library.

The complete OKeh sessions 1952-'55   [sound recording] book The complete OKeh sessions 1952-'55 [sound recording]
Maybelle's raw, gutsy r&b vocals - by turns aggressive, celebratory, and surprisingly vulnerable - are on full display in this fantastic collection of her mid-50's recordings for the Okeh label.

Recommended by Rob at Stanwood Library.

Big Maybelle, d. 1972.
On Order

The exciting Wilson Pickett   [sound recording] CD The exciting Wilson Pickett [sound recording]
Pickett's second album (from 1966) is superlative soul. This is an especially fun album as it mixes the more familiar hits ("Land Of 1000 Dances" and "In The Midnight Hour") with some less familiar material (the jaw-dropping "Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)" is a favorite of mine) and some excellent cover (great versions of Don Covay's "Mercy Mercy" and Robert Parker's "Barefootin'").

Recommended by Rob at Stanwood Library.

Pickett, Wilson.
CD M PIC6336

We're only in it for the money   [sound recording] CD We're only in it for the money [sound recording]
One of my favorite Zappa/Mothers albums, this is a viciously witty send-up of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album and late-60s hippie culture in general. This is also one of Zappa's more accessible albums - it's not quite as aggressively experimental as some of his other albums. A great place to start for those new to Zappa.

Recommended by Rob @ Stanwood Library

Zappa, Frank.
CD M ZAP503

Solo   [sound recording] :   songs my dad loved CD Solo [sound recording] : songs my dad loved
A delightful collection of classic bluegrass songs, performed with Skaggs' usual heart and talent, and great musicians collaborating.

Recommended by Dawn @ Mountlake Terrace Library

Skaggs, Ricky.
CD U SKA92

Rubber soul   [sound recording]. CD Rubber soul [sound recording].
More from their classic "middle period", with John's sardonic "Norwegian Wood" and nostalgic "In My Life" -- this one shows them leaving their moptop era behind.

Recommended by David

Lennon, John, 1940-1980.
CD M BEA402

Revolver   [sound recording]. CD Revolver [sound recording].
Freed from having to perform live, the Beatles experimented more with arrangements, and this CD shows them stretching out, with the chamber music of "Eleanor Rigby" and the early psychedelia of "Tommorrow Never Knows", along with such good-time songs as "Got to Get You Into My Life" and "Good Day Sunshine". (Oh, and note the punning title: you see, kids, when this was an LP, it was played on a turntable...)

Recommended by David

Lennon, John, 1940-1980.
CD M-BEA412

Beatles for sale   [sound recording]. CD Beatles for sale [sound recording].
Touring non-stop made it difficult to write new material, so this one is almost half covers. Still, you can't argue with such quality songs as "Eight Days a Week" and "I'm a Loser".

Recommended by David
